Worker Training Text Messages

Farm worker produce safety training does not always have to be formal or time intensive. In support of on-farm worker training, the Michigan On-Farm Produce Safety Team, in collaboration with Michigan State University Extension and Ferris State University, will be launching a free produce safety training texting service.

Farm workers and supervisors can sign up to receive a text once a week that features a short message, graphic, video clip, or other resource related to produce safety.

In addition, farm supervisors can opt in to receive a quarterly report on who was trained, the topics covered, and the dates the texts were sent in order to comply with the FSMA record keeping requirement.

Sign up to receive texts in English by texting Training to 888-531-2157. Para inscribirse a este servicio en español, los trabajadores agrícolas pueden enviar un mensaje de texto con la palabra Capacitar al (888) 531-2157. You may also click one of the links at the top of the page.
